Chin Reshaping San Francisco

Published on April 7, 2018

Chin reshaping through Chin Implants can make a huge difference in the overall balance and harmony of the face. The chin and nose both go a long way in effecting the way we perceive the other features of the face. For a person with a disproportionately small chin, a chin implant can subtly, yet significantly improve the overall aesthetic of the face and create a stronger, more defined jaw line. While many men long for a strong, defined, manly chin, many women long for a defined jaw line to accentuate the neck and create a leaner looking face. In some cases, a Chin Implant procedure is paired with a Rhinoplasty, or Nose Surgery, to create the most ideal facial harmony.

Chin Reshaping surgery takes approximately one hour and is performed through very small incision under the chin. Recovery time for Chin Reshaping can vary but most patients usually take the two days to heal at home and rest. There will be minimal bruising and swelling that can last for several days. Within 5 days from the procedure, more patients are able to return to work. If you are interested in discussing your Chin Reshaping options, the first step is to schedule with Dr. Chiu-Collins. She will educate you on the process, evaluate your face, goals and concerns and determine if you Chin Reshaping is the best option for you.
